Fascinating 5,000sq. meters graffiti seen inside of SW. China’s railway station



Indoor graffiti of 5000 square meters with various styles can be seen at Lieshimu Station in Chongqing, southwestern China. It is currently the architecture with the largest area of indoor graffiti in China. Styles such as printing and shadow puppetry are applied while designing.

In China, elevated metro is called Light Rail.

Yup. They are reluctant to call an elevated metro as such because the Chinese word for "metro", 地铁 ditie, is a contraction from 地下铁路 dixia tielu, which literally means "underground railway". And obvously an elevated metro line is not underground. It's much like "highway", which in Europe has come to mean "motorway" but actually means "main road".

When they were first opened (in February 2015, almost two years later than the rest of the branch) they were in the middle of nowhere, and now there is something else near them.
However the last pic clearly shows Huangmaoping is still named this way, and not Huaqiao Cheng as I announced back then.

Big Day in Chongqing with the Opening of Lines 5 and 10!
After a quiet year Chongqing expands its network with two brand new lines.



Before today exchanging lines in the north of the city (that is, going from Line 6 to Line 3, and vice versa) would have meant go all the way to the city center, switch lines, and then go back to the North.
With today we can just take line 10 or line 5 and go straight to our destination.

These openings means saving plenty of time and money for many Chongqing travelers (Chongqing fares are distance based).

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the support and wish you happy holidays!

A new update will be soon available on both our Online Chongqing Metro Map and our Chongqing Metro App, on the App Store.

Stay tuned for more metro news on your favorite cities!

Somehow Chongqing doesn't follow Chinese standards for signage, instead having adopted Japanese ones, making it stand out.

Anyway, two new lines have opened:
Line 5, Yuanbo Zhongxin (not to be confused with nearby Yuanboyuan on line 3) to Dalongshan, 9 stations, 13.6 km (Wikipedia lists it at 19.2 km, they have counted to Hongyancun). Only the Northern section has opened, the rest to Tiaodeng has been delayed.
Line 10, Liyuchi to Wangjiazhuang, 32.2 km, 18 stations (Chongqing Beizhan Beiguangchang, i.e. North Square of North Station, left unopened for now). This will be the only line stopping at both sides of the North railway station, also serves Jiangbei Airport and then a straight shot to Yuelai. It also features the deepest station in China: Hongtudi (95 meters below the ground). In a second phase it will be extended to Lanhua Lu.

So, counting both monorail and metro, Chongqing Rail Transit is now at 259.1 km. The Northeastern part of the Loop line and line 4 are in the pipeline for 2018.

In addition, line 10 has made some fares to notably drop, for example between Jiangbei Airport and Yuelai it has gone from 9 to 3 yuan, a 66.67 % reduction.

Do you mean Yuanbo Zhongxin to Dalongshan?

Yup. Somehow I read the first station of the yet-to-be opened section instead of the previous one. Too many openings in one day...

I heard rumors but this basically confirms it. Line 10 platforms do support up to 7 car As size trains and it might actually be the standard for other lines using the As type rolling stock (Lines 4, 5, 9 and Ring Line).
